The 2018 Kia Sportage is a compact crossover that draws outside the lines to provide exceptional performance and capabilities. The exterior design of the Sportage is sleek and luxurious. It features sweeping lines and sleek curves that give off an athletic vibe, and a unique front fascia that turns heads wherever you go. A tiger-nose grille is complemented by sleek side contours and bold wheel arches that create an aggressive look from the front. The headlights of the Sportage have an elongated design and feature available Dynamic Bending Light technology that helps you see around curves and corners in the dark.
Inside the Sportage, comfort is a priority. Soft-touch materials and a functional design make it easy to sit back and relax. A driver-centric cockpit includes an angled center console that makes it easy for you to reach the display and buttons from the driver's seat. The rear seats of the Sportage have a 60/40 split-folding feature that allows you to customize your passenger and cargo space to create a blend that fits your needs. Additionally, the Sportage offers a dual-level cargo floor and smart storage compartments that ensure everything you bring along has a place to go.

Both engines are coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Sportage also offers a Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive system on all trim levels to give you more confidence in inclement weather or changing driving conditions.
